Great strings...
30.08.2015
If you're buying a bass from Thomann and you don't want to bother with stock strings, order these at the same time.

It's a nice, slinky, great sounding bass string.

It's a good choice for beginners wanting to train their fingers without necessarily having the strength to terminate thicker strings against the frets, in my humble opinion...

I have two basses equipped with these strings. I have an old, double humbucking Peavey thru neck that I have modified, and a Mexican Fender Jazz. They sound excellent on both, particularly the Fender. Lovely mid - range punch. Great for casual funky jams.

This is quite a bright sounding string, so if you're looking for a truly rumbling sound, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a string that feels light and has a 'twangy punch', look no further.

Exactly the sound I was after
Nadz, 06.08.2015
These might not be everyone's cup of tea, but for the chimey sound I was trying to achieve, these are perfect. I needed something tight, clear (glassy, if that makes sense?) with pronounced mids and more defined top-end. I'm into players like Justin Chancellor and Les Claypool who seem to have a very particular sound.

I'm not a Bass player in the traditional sense, though I use a Bass regularly to record my music with, so I was initially at a loss as to what kind of strings to go for to get the sound I wanted. I described my needs to a Bass player friend of mine who recommended these and Hi-Beams.
Having tried both sets out, I definitely prefer these. They just seem to have that bit more bite to them, but with a light feel that is easier for my fingers to get around.

I really enjoy playing my Bass with these strings, they're easy to get used to for someone who is used to playing guitar, and they sound amazing! Even made my Squier Jaguar Bass sound great. :)

Perfect Strings for Every Bass Guitar
Biagio, 03.09.2019
I've been using Ernie Ball strings for the last 10 years playing italian rock, 80s dance, hard rock and metal in different sets (110-55; 105-50; 100-45; 95-45).
Set exlusively on long scale bass-guitars, I always found and got the right sound for every song and every bassline.
I would never change.

Corde da basso (4 strings) super leggere
23.12.2016
Il set di corde Ernie Ball 2835 Extra Slinky è un set di corde per bassi elettrci pensato per chi preferisce corde di diametro inferiore rispetto ai set di corde più tradizionali (.40-.100 o .45-.105).

A mia opinione questo set potrebbe costituire un vantaggio per i musicisti che praticano la tecnica dello slap, soprattutto nella fase iniziale dell'apprendimento di tale tecnica. Infatti un maggiore intercorda dovuto al minor spessore delle corde potrebbe permettere una maggiore semplicità nel percuotere le corde e nel dover essere "meno attenti" nel muting delle stesse, risaltando maggiormente le frequenze alte.
Possono essere una buona scelta anche per chi muove i primi passi con lo strumento richiedendo meno sforzo alle dita durante il quotidiano esercizio.
Nell'esecuzione di brani rock classico e contemporaneo, metal e altri, dai quali ricerco più la pienezza di suono, le frequenze basse e quindi il "groove", preferisco corde più grosse (almeno .105 la corda del mi, per accordature standard).
